Morphed picture of Mamata: Priyanka says will fight this case; will not apologise
Kolkata| Jagran News Desk| BJP Youth Wing Convenor Priyanka Sharma on Wednesday said she will fight for this case and will not apologise.
“My bail was granted yesterday, but still I wasn’t released for another 18 hours. They didn’t allow me to meet my advocate and family. They made me sign an apology,” she said at a press conference.
“I will fight this case. I will not apologise,” she added.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday had granted bail to Priyanka and asked her to apologise, while observing that freedom of speech ends when it infringes upon others' rights.
However, Priyanka was not immediately released and today the court warned that it will issue a notice of contempt to West Bengal Government.
The West Bengal Government said that Priyanka was released today at 9.40 am on which the Supreme Court bench asked why she was not released immediately.
Priyanka’s Lawyer said she was released from 9.40 to 10.00 am and that too after made to sign a statement prepared by police.
Sharma was arrested on May 10 by the West Bengal Police under section 500 (defamation) of the IPC and under other provisions of the Information Technology Act on the complaint of a local Trinamool Congress leader Vibhas Hazra.
